I request a quite complex xml structure from my webserver via
a webservice method.
This xml is received by flex as a XMLList object. Now i need
to transform the complex structure
into a more simple one that serves as dataProvider for a
I'm new to XSL and pretty much got no clue, i just found out
that you have to specify the template.xsl file inside the origin
xml file.. So now i got no xml file but a xmllist object. How do i
get this working? do i have to call another function when i
received my xml that does the job somehow?
I don't believe Flex has any support for XSL - XSL is not
part of XML, it's a separate technology. It just so happens your
browser has an XSL transformer, but that's a different thing.
Your options are: Apply a server-side transformation or use
the E4X features in Flex (which are quite powerful and will
probably be sufficient). See the XML chapter in the "Programming
Actionscript 3" manual.
